The new face of the classics

Igor Stravinsky shook the ballet world in the 1910s with his groundbreaking ballet music, which cemented his position as one of the most highly esteemed composers of the 20th century. Two key works created for the Ballets Russes troupe, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring, ushered in a new era in ballet history with their music, choreography, and visuals. The Stravinsky evening at the Finnish National Ballet offers a fresh take on his original works, combining his music with innovative choreography and stunning visuals. Sacre is a choreography by Goyo Montero to the music of Le Sacre du Printemps. The evening will begin with Petrushka, choreographed by Johan Inger.
